Dalton Profile


Overview

Dalton is a very small borough located in the state of Pennsylvania. With a population of 1,209 people and just one neighborhood, Dalton is the 737th largest community in Pennsylvania. Dalton has a large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic boroughs in the country.

Dalton real estate is some of the most expensive in Pennsylvania, although Dalton house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some boroughs where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Dalton is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Dalton is a borough of professionals, sales and office workers, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Dalton who work in office and administrative support (12.52%), management occupations (11.05%), and healthcare (10.60%).

Setting & Lifestyle

In addition, Dalton is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates". Urban sophisticates are educated, wealthy, executives and professionals, who have urbane tastes in books, food, and travel, whether they actually live in a big city, or choose to reside in a small town. In big or medium-sized cities, urban sophisticates tend to frequent art institutions such as opera, symphonies, ballet, live theatre, and museums.

Because of many things, Dalton is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Dalton a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The borough’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Dalton has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Dalton’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.

Dalton is a small borough, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
